take the humbuckers out, turn them upside down, you should have 2-4 screws (small crossheads) on the underside, unscrew these, then you should have a blob of solder holding the cover on, desolder this 'blob' and bobs your uncle, job done..

are you about the screws? because i have seen humbuckers upside down without a cover and they still had those screws

i have seen this on, may be of interest.
discribes how to remove the cover from a seymour duncan, i would think it is very similar to your pup.
good luck.
